Cougar Havoc BT Wireless Gaming Headset Review

WEB: COUGAR MSRP: US $64.90 | ZAR TBD | AUTHOR: Neo

Several weeks ago I reviewed Cougar’s Attila gaming headset and I came away from that review impressed by the value it offered. This time I have a higher quality headset in the form of the Havoc BT, which is in itself a follow up on the original wired mode only, Havoc headset.

ADATA SU750 512GB SSD Review

WEB: ADATA MSRP: US $59.99 | ZAR 1,559 | AUTHOR: Neo

ADATA SU750

Here we are with yet another ADATA SSD, but this time it’s the SU750 2.5” SATA model. With nearly all vendors selling performance above all, the SU750 is strictly about value. This is an entry level drive and as such, it forgoes the typical high-speed controllers but instead uses a Realtek 2-channel IC. This controller and the drive’s lack of any DRAM cache is what allows it to retail for such an aggressive price. For a budget drive, it’s difficult to fault the performance because at worst it’s still faster than any mechanical drive. That alone makes it a worthwhile drive for one to consider.

ASUS TUF GAMING X570-PLUS Review

WEB: ASUS MSRP: US $193.22 | ZAR 3,999 | AUTHOR: Neo

X570 Plus

I think it’s safe to say that X570 boards have gone from interesting to incredible since their introduction in 2019. We went from the chipset fans being an issue, to something we rarely if ever talk about anymore. Now, in 2020 (yes, I know, the X570-Plus is from 2019) we even have refined offerings like the TUF-Gaming X570-Plus for the entry-level and budget space. In that same period, AGESA updates have improved compatibility and performance, making the whole experience that much better .

4 Things You’ll Need to Build a High-End Gaming Keyboard

For serious gamers looking to improve their experiences, keyboards shouldn’t be overlooked. While some gamers will debate which is the better option between conventional controllers and keyboards, the latter approach seems to win out for PC users. And there are some instances, and some games, for which a mouse and keyboard setup is clearly superior.

XFX RX 5600 XT THICC III Ultra Review

WEB: XFX MSRP: USD 329.99 | ZAR 5,849 | AUTHOR: Neo


Following the RX 5700 XT review we have yet another entry using the NAVI10 GPU in the XFX RX 5600 XT Thicc III Ultra. A silly name for a card which provides the best performance at this price point par none. These days R6,000 / $349 doesn’t buy much GPU performance, but with the XFX RX 5600XT it seemingly does. This graphics card provides what I deem unmatched performance for FHD and in some rare instances QHD gaming.

AORUS RX 5700 XT 8G Review

WEB: AORUS MSRP: USD 449.99 | ZAR 9,840 | AUTHOR: Neo


The Aorus RX 5700 XT, much like all other NAvi10 graphics cards represents AMD’s most advanced and most power efficient GPU to date, even if it isn’t their fastest sometimes. Afterall, as much as AMD has been putting up a strong fight and some might even say winning in the CPU arena. The firm hasn’t fared as well when it comes to their graphics cards. However, with the RDNA GPUs, AMD has made huge strides in closing the gap between itself and its primary competitor.

ADATA XPG SX8200 Pro 512GB SSD Review

WEB: XPG MSRP: US $84.99 | ZAR 1,919 | AUTHOR: Neo

SX8200 Pro

ADATA isn’t new to storage and as we saw with the last GAMMIX S11 SSD, can produce some worthwhile storage solutions. As with all things though, if you’re not partial to such drives, be it because of the visuals or something else, there’s an alternative in the SX8200 Pro which for all intents and purposes is near identical to the Gammix S11 Pro. What this drive offers over the Gammix I’m not entirely sure, but even if it’s nothing, it still means great performance at a reasonable price. The SX8200 Pro features a 5-year warranty and/or a total of 320TBW, an SLC cache and peak read performance of up to 3,5GB/s. What’s not to like about that?
